5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, Angled and Curved walls and all! June 8, 2012
I must admit, when my husband and I first purchased this product, we didn't really read because we were so excited to get started and figured that we would just learn along the way. I found it to be very difficult at first and became discouraged. Then, later on we decided to try it again, only this time we looked at the tool guide in the start up menu and looked at how to do all the things they had listed and using the software became so much easier. Then we came across wondering how to angle a wall and do circles and couldn't figure it out and looked up other reviews that said that they couldn't angle walls either. We both thought how could a software this good not be able to angle walls. Fortunately enough, WE FIGURED OUT HOW TO ANGLE WALLS ON HGTV ULTIMATE HOME DESIGN with Landscaping and Decks Version 3! Not only that but we also figured out how to do circular rooms as well! All you have to do is go up to the Tools menu, go to Layout, then select either the line or the arc or the circle and then you can do angles by drawing a horizontal or vertical line, clicking finish, then hovering over either end of the line until a little circle with four lines coming out of it shows and then click and hold the line dragging it into whatever angled position and length you'd like. To convert the line into a wall, click on the line then right click and go to Convert to convert it to the wall or what it is that you would like. With circles and arcs the tutor shows how to do those as well and to convert them the same goes, click it then right click go to Convert and then convert to what you want. If it wasn't for research and really reading when we had a question we would have never known what we do now. I would recommend this product to anyone! It is great and it is reasonably priced as well! Hope this helps! God bless!

2.0 out of 5 stars User interface not for the average Joe November 6, 2011
By John E
I was pretty unimpressed with this software user interface. There is very little that's intuitive, the graphics are cheesy compared to some others on the market, and it makes me feel like I wasted my money by trying to save money. I'd rather pay $500 and have something intuitive. Don't misinterpret this review... I'm well aware a learning curve exists with this type of software, but this one is over the top. I'm going to try Chief Architect Pro's 30 day trial to determine if it's that much better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from this software September 2, 2013
This software was advertised (and the glossy "brochure" attached to the box) as one that a user could upload a picture of their home and then add plants and other features to build beds. Yes, there are a lot of plants in the plant encyclopedia, but you cannot upload a picture into the software (you can into the instant makeover, but that doesn't have the ability to add plants). Their "customer support" won't talk to you unless you pay them $20 per hour. Their email support states that the landscaping CD doesn't do that. When I question why it says so on the box, they then refuse to answer. Bottom line - horrible to use (the instant makeover CD had an 800 page user's manual!), doesn't do what is claims, the worst customer service of any product I have purchased.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not ready for Prime Time June 23, 2013
Sadly, this is a "close but no cigar" situation. HGTV Ultimate has quite a bit of promise, and at first, it seems like a great solution if you are designing your home or simply trying to create a model of it so that you can make and "try out" modifications.

Your initial impression is that you can do really nice things like accurately place walls, change colors, do 3D views, rendering, etc.

But, after investing several hours into this software, you being to realize the very serious limitations and bugs, and hopefully will realize before the deadline for return that you've possibly wasted your money. Or, maybe, for your purposes, it will give you everything you need. But, make no mistake--it has very serious limitations.

Example #1. You design your home and lay it out. You want to change the ceiling height from one section of your great room to another. It seems simple. You select a portion of the room and make it a 10' ceiling and leave the rest at 12'. Except that when you look in 3D, you see a "hole" where it changes and you get to look up into the attic... Really?

Example #2. You want to attach a garage to your completed house. The addition of the room goes smoothly. And then you put a roof on it. All looks OK from the outside. So you go inside, where you see that the roof from the garage has penetrated into the adjoining room, through the ceiling... Really?

Example #3. You want to examine some options for changing the entry door to you home, so you do your layout, and then insert one of the standard entry doors. However, you'd like a little "grander" entrance, so you increase the door height from standard 80" to 8'.

2.0 out of 5 stars No way to control length of walls exactlly December 16, 2012
By thompjs
I've spent 4 hours trying to get my existing slab drawn into this product. You can't specify dimensions of a line or wall directly. I tried converting lines to walls, but they are centered.

Documentation very often does not match what is on screen.

Option for updates is missing.
